Ron Smyth is a Morgantown native, and studied fine arts at the University of West Virginia. Though oil painting is the medium with which he prefers to communicate his thoughts and ideas, Ron has found an outlet and inspiration in the creation and deconstruction of the functional objects in our modern culture.
Many of the movements in his paintings are images of still functional and accurate timepieces. Ron hopes, through his work, to open eyes to the beauty that can and does surround the most functional of objects.
He is the owner and manager of Wallcraft, Inc., a decorative painting company specializing in old-world plaster techniques, historic building restoration, metal gilding and painted surface finishes, and the father of two boys.
